Yeastie-Boys-Digital-IPA

Awesome brewery name aside, the Digital IPA from Yeastie Boys is just a flat-out great beer. We’re suckers for a good IPA and this offering from the New Zealand brewery nails everything we look for in a hoppy brew. Aside from that, it’s the first time we’ve come across an interactive beer. Each bottle features a QR code that will take drinkers to the recipe when scanned. It’s the perfect idea for the home brewer who likes to get experimental off some already great recipes. Hey, even if you don’t brew at home, you should buy it if you can find it because it’s just good beer and that’s reason enough.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
